HC Deb 23 April 1896 vol 39 cc1510-1
MR. THOMAS BAYLEY (Derbyshire, Chesterfield)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, whether his attention has been called to an inquest held before the Deputy Coroner for East London, on 7th April, on the body of the daughter of a printer, residing at 22, Mary Anne Street, St. George's, E., who was alleged to have died from the effects, direct or indirect, of vaccination; and, whether any Inquiry into the case has been made either by the Local Government Board, or on behalf of the Royal Commission on Vaccination?


Neither the Local Government Board nor the Royal Commission on Vaccination have received any information as to the case referred to. I have communicated with the Coroner requesting him to forward to the Board a copy of the depositions, and, as soon as they are received, I will consider whether an Inquiry in the case appears to be necessary.
